Tanner Don Nutt, September 5, 1988~December 11, 2016

nutt-tannerTanner Don Nutt, 28, of Eureka Springs AR left his family and friends on December 11, 2016 to begin a new journey in life where he will find peace and love once again. Tanner was born in Clarksville, AR on September 5, 1988 to David and Carla Nutt. Tanner leaves behind his wife, Tara Ross and 3 beautiful children; Trenton (5), Savanna (3) and Jacie (1) Nutt whom he loved with all his heart.  His big sister, Lindsey Huskey that he always admired and looked up to; nieces,  Kaley (9) and Kenley Belle Huskey (5) who thought of Tanner as the “Coolest Uncle” ever; his parents David & Carla Nutt, his great-aunt, Mary Ann Fredrick and his two grandfathers, “Pa” Carl Goheen and “Papaw” Hallie Nutt who he had the utmost respect for.

Tanner had a “Big Heart” and became a brother to everyone he met for life. He accumulated a big family throughout his lifetime. There are so many more friends and family that aren’t mentioned, we recognize them all.

Tanner excelled in all sports. He was an all-star baseball player, running back in football, basketball player, enjoyed BMX biking, skateboarding, and lived for fishing and kayaking.

Although we will miss Tanner greatly, we also know that Tanner is now in good hands being reunited with family and friends. Those include big brother, J. Cody Nutt that meant the world to him; grandmothers that he loved dearly, “Granny” Jimmie Goheen and “MaMaw” Velma Nutt; and friend, “Uncle” Andy Thomas.

Funeral services will be 2:00 P.M. Thursday, December 15, 2016 at Beard’s Funeral Chapel.

Honorary pallbearers will be Tyler Cabello-Penn, Bramel Harrison, Evan O’Callaghan, Cory Eubanks, Zack Roberts, Joel Booth and Ben Benson.

In lieu of flowers, an account will be set-up for donations for his children at Arvest Bank.

    Though I didn’t know Tanner well, the one thing I remember about him was how easily he seemed to make friends. He didn’t even have to try. I always admired that about him, he seemed to make popularity look so easy. I also remember him keeping a close eye on Lindsey when they showed up at the church in Goshen. I hate to hear about so many people losing someone so dear at such a young age, but from what I did know about Tanner, he always made whoever he was around feel important. Even if you just ran into him somewhere. So very, very sorry for everyone he left behind.
